Missing Chat

We were thinking back and remembering all the friends we use to meet on DWB Chat Room. Now it seems like it is just Skye and the Collies. We sure miss the days when there would be five or six dogs on chat. Sigh...

The collies usually get on chat around 9 AM, Sunday, East Coast Time. Sometimes we are 10 or 15 minutes late because Dad does a couple things every Sunday morning. If you ever get a chance join us one Sunday morning for chat.

Dog Speed,

February Update

Essex resting after her vet visit

Essex visited the vet Friday and is doing very well. Essex weighed 60 lbs (27 kg). Dad reported the usual torn paw pad for this time of year. So she will be getting paw care for the next couple weeks. Since Essex got her shots, she was a little grumpy and woozy, so no dog park Friday. She will also be coming back for teeth cleaning in March.

Kylie & Deacon

Kylie glances at Essex

The Collie next door, Kylie, has been sent back to live with her Grand-Mutter. She kept escaping from the yard. She was gone for three days on one occasion. We keep looking for her on the other side of the fence. We know Dad misses having her say hi too. However, it is more important that she is safe.

Dog Speed,

Hattie Crosses the Bridge


We found out a couple hours ago that our good friend Hattie had crossed the Rainbow Bridge today. You may recall that Hattie and Cassie were our Collie friends that lived in Northern Ohio. Hattie's health recently rapidly went downhill. We know she is in the Woods with her Collie chum Frisco. We are sure Bobby, Howie, Foxy and Pudgy came out to greet Hattie. Then all went out to run and play.
We first met Hattie and Cassie way back on 27 September 2007. Their Dog Mom came over to Grand-Maw and Grand-Paws house to come see us. All of us became best of chums. We loved visiting and they loved having us around. After awhile we all became part of the same pack. They felt like family to us. They helped us out when Grand-Maw and Grand-Paw crossed the bridge in 2008 and 2010.
Hattie's Mom & Dad are putting up a strong front, we know they are both softies and this is really hard on them. We wish we lived close so we could help them through all of this. Both of us could lick their faces and keep Cassie company. Dog Dad would do his part in helping them out. We have offered to write more about Hattie if they e-bark us.
Dog Speed Hattie,
Your bestest chums Essex, Deacon and Dog Dad too.
